About National Grammar Day
National Grammar Day was established in 2008 by Martha Brockenbrough, founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar and author of Things That Make Us [Sic].
In 2021, National Grammar Day is hosted by Mignon Fogarty, the author of the New York Times bestselling book Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing.
Enter the National Grammar Day poetry contest hosted by ACES: The Society for Editors. The format this year is open, and the winner gets a yearlong membership in ACES and the poem read in the Grammar Girl podcast.
